Heroes & Generals, the World War 2 themed MMOFPS from Denmark based developer Reto-Moto has made the jump from pseudo-browser powered FPS to a full fledged Steam release starting today. The move to Steam marks a long journey for Heroes & Generals as it was one of the first 10 games to actually be Greenlight through Steam almost two years ago.
Since then the FPS has enjoyed a steady amount of updates, adding in new ground and air vehicles, weapons, paratroopers, an improved UI and a more intuitive character progression on top of the usual bug fixes and balance tweaks.
For those who tried Heroes & Generals in the past, but didn’t have much luck with the browser plugin, the addition of a standalone client through Steam should alleviate any outstanding issues while still allowing players to retain their character progress as both versions offer access to the same servers.
To celebrate the launch, Reto-Moto has released a new trailer which features plenty of albeit unintentional comical acting and an appropriate amount of explosions for any World War 2 shooter.
